Coffee Break DSP – Spinner Card

It’s no secret that one of my favourite products from the new catalogue is the Coffee Break DSP!

The colours are fabulous, the patterns are amazing and it has a coffee theme – people love coffee!!!

There’s an extra little bonus for this DSP… the little coffee cup framelit from the Coffee Cups Framelits set coordinates with the DSP!!!

The uniformity of the die to cut out the coffee cup (and the cuteness) makes it the perfect centrepiece for a card with a spinning element.

We had so much fun making this card during today’s class.

I shared how to put the spinner together – and then they can just change up the centrepiece at home to create any kind of spinner they want (or anything that fits in the circle!).

See it in action, thanks to the lovely wind that’s blowing through this afternoon!

 

Does the new Marbled Background stamp remind you of a swirl on the top of a mug of barista coffee?  I thought it worked well for this card!

I love it when I can match products from different parts of the catalogue!!

After cutting up the the sheet of DSP for all the little coffee cups, I had lots of other coffee shapes.

Look how cute they look lined up on this quick & easy card…

Yes, I truly love this DSP!!!

CASEing the Catty #134 – Babies & Kids

It’s been wonderful to see all the CASEing the Catty projects this month over on our Facebook page.  Thanks to everyone who has been entering the challenge and sharing their creativity!

Ready for a new theme?

This week we’re CASEing the Babies & Kids section of the Annual Catalogue.

No automatic alt text available.

There’s only one set in this section that I don’t own – can you guess which one???  It’s on my wishlist, so might appear shortly!

When I first saw the Annual Catalogue at OnStage I knew that I {had to have} the ‘A Little Wild’ stamp set and coordinating Little Loves Framelits dies.

I have 3 variations of the same project to share today that were inspired by towel decoration in the photo above, the mobile we have in our toy room and a cute card I saw on Pinterest.

I’m loving playing with the new DSP.  If I had to choose a favourite, at this moment, it’s easily the Coffee Break DSP – such lovely patterns & colours!

I used the Coffee Break DSP for the elephant mobile …

The bear mobile uses Whole Lot of Lovely. Color Theory & Birthday Memories DSP…

And the lion mobiles uses the Whole Lot of Lovely & Delightful Daisy DSP…

Cards like this are a great way to use your DSP scraps.

And all that ribbon that tends to build up in a beautiful array of colours!

I’ve used three new offerings from the new catalogue – Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon & Calypso Coral Ombre Ribbon.

There’s over 50 new ribbons, trims & twines in the Annual Catalogue!!!  So much prettiness!


For more prettiness, hop on to the lovely Bronwyn Eastley to see her project inspired by the Babies & Kids section of the Annual Catalogue…

And be sure to join the fun on our Facebook page!

Wishing you a lovely week!

{LOVE} Paper? Read on…

Pretty patterned paper is always one of my favourite new catalogue products!

I have a wonderful collection and like to use it regularly!

Nothing brightens up a card like a piece of DSP!!!

But, of course with 14 new designs in the catalogue (actually 15 if you count the Fresh Floral In Colour stack), that’s a lot of DSP to collect.

Of course, buying full packs of each design add a substantial cost to your wishlist!

I’d like to help out by coordinating a paper share.

You’ll get 102 sheets of beautiful new DSP in 6″x6″ size.  All for the low cost of $43.

Postage is available Australia wide for just $7 if required (total cost of the paper share with postage is $50).

Each paper share includes at least one of each design in each pack, except specialty packs where designs will be allocated randomly.

Random allocation of specialty papers enabled me to keep the costs low.

The Fresh Florals Paper Stack is not including in this DSP share.  

But all the designs shown below are!

People often tell me how much they love participating in paper shares.  They end up with paper that they never thought they’d love – but they do!  They have a range of colours & designs on hand for any occasion.  And it’s a great way to work out which designs you’d like to buy a full pack of.

The 6″x6″ sheets are a great size.  You get one full standard card front, plus a strip for another card or project, or you can keep at 6″ size and create 3D projects.

Sound like something that will get this new catalogue started in style for you???

Fill in your details below and I’ll contact you to finalise the details:

This paper share is open to Australian residents, including Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

You’re going to love having so much paper to play with!

 

ESAD Blog Hop – 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Image may contain: text

There’s lots of excited Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and customers this week, because we’re only a few sleeps away from the release of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue!

To spread some more of that excitement, a group of demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook page are getting together today to participate in a Sneak Peek blog hop.

Image may contain: text

You’re going to see lots of amazing samples as you hop around more than 20 blogs of talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

If you’re already on the way then you’ve just seen the gorgeous work of my friend Lou Kitzelman.  I’ll take this opportunity to give her a big pat on the back for all the hard work she does to organise these blog hops!

And now on to my creations!

Today’s shares are all about one of the bundles you’ll be able to order in the new catalogue.

I’m feeling quite sneaky today because I have the pleasure of sharing something with you that not too many people have had the chance to play with – yet – but I know will be in the shopping carts of many on Thursday.

It’s the Circle Tab Punch and Tabs for Everything stamp set!

The Tabs for Everything Stamp Set was in our bag at the April OnStage event (so lucky!) and the Circle Tab Punch appeared in my beautiful box of products for my display stamping board for OnStage #demoperks

Apart from it’s amazing uses… cards, scrapbook pages, organisation and the new planner (!!!), one of the best things about this product set is the price!

The bundle is only $54.75 in Australia and $66.50 in New Zealand!  All new bundles in the catalogue are priced to give you a 10% discount.


I used the punch in my display board samples (see them here and here) – on it’s own and with complementary products, but as with many Stampin’ Up! products, it really comes into it’s full amazinglness when used as a coordinating set.

To show you the wonderful potential, I’ve paired it one of the new DSPs.

It’s bright & fun – you’re going to love the Pick A Pattern DSP!!!

This pattern seemed perfect for the paintbrush stamp from the Crafting Forever stamp set.

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

I’ve used the tab on the edge of the centre panel for the ‘happy’ sentiment and the ‘birthday’ sentiment in the Classic Label punch.

The colours in this DSP are gorgeous!

For this card, I’ve used the punch negative as a little cubby for the animals – which are fussy cut from the Pick A Pattern DSP.

 

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

And the ‘hello’ sentiment from the Tabs for Everything stamp set – it’s packed full of cute (and practical) little words!


The final card uses the camera/photo page from the DSP – and following that theme, I created a film strip using the stamps from the Tabs for Everything stamp set.

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

With a tab pull at the end – of course!

ESAD Blog Hop - 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek | kelly kent

Did you notice the use of the Classic Label Punch in these creations?  It’s not part of the bundle, but many of the sentiments fit this punch perfectly.

I am a huge fan of the Classic Label Punch – and the ability to punch out sentiments (and get them straight!).


If that wasn’t enough to tip the Circle Tab Punch onto your wishlist, then you might be tempted about how easy it is to create catalogue tabs for your new catty!

Catalogue Tabs - Stampin' Up! 2017 Annual Catalogue | kelly kent

With just the Circle Tab Punch, 3/4″ circle and the {FREE} Catalogue Tab downloads below, you’ll be able to totally organise your catalogue!

Catalogue Tabs - Stampin' Up! 2017 Annual Catalogue | kelly kent

Print the tab labels onto Whisper White cardstock, punch using the 3/4″ circle, attach to the left side of the tab and fold in half around each page, attaching at the rectangle tab section to create a sturdy tab.

I’ve suggested colours & page numbers – but this part is really up to you!

All my tabs sit on the right hand side of the catalogue, regardless of whether the section starts on this page or the even page number before it.

Technique Class – Embossed Stamping

Today’s class participants requested that they learn more techniques that they could apply to their card making at home.

We did a range of things including reflection stamping, ‘kissing’ and embossed stamping.

I’ll share them all eventually, but I’ll start with “embossed stamping”.

It’s a whole new way to get use from your embossing folders.

Instead of running them through the Big Shot, you use your ink pad to ink up the inside cover then close it with your cardstock instead.  Give it a good press and the embossing folder pattern is inked on your cardstock.

We used the Brick Wall folder – it looked great!

Jar of Love | kelly kent

I was so in love with this card, I made a few variations for other occasions.

Mother’s Day…

Jar of Love | kelly kent

Anniversary…

Creating in multiples is a great way to build a card stash & make the most of the all the different papers and inks you have.

Which colour combination do you love the most?  I think the Mother’s Day blue & yellow stole my heart!


I always have so much fun at classes.  If you’re in the Bunbury area and would like to make cards, get in touch with me so we can lock in a date to create!
